Like the Nothing Phone (1), the Nothing Phone (2) has a good amount of hype around it. And Carl Pei has been fueling it from the get-go. Just recently, Carl Pei talked about the core specs of the phone.

In an interview with Forbes, the CEO of Nothing said that the next-gen phone will be made available to the U.S. and the rest of the world simultaneously. And it is coming in July!
Carl Pei Talks About Launch Plans of Nothing Phone (2)
Aside from just spilling the beans on the launch timeline of Nothing Phone (2), Carl Pei mentioned one important thing. That is, the U.S. market will be extremely important for the success of the phone. And interestingly, he is expecting the phone to be a genuine alternative to iPhone for consumers across the entire U.S.

To be exact, Carl Pei said, “With the U.S. being a very apple-dominated market with no real option for people looking for an alternative, it represents a good opportunity for Nothing Phone (2).” And to make the phone a proper alternative to iPhones, Nothing has carefully selected the device's internals.
We already know that Nothing Phone (2) will come with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. In a recent tweet, Pei mentioned that it is a “proven processor.” Pei also said the device would primarily focus on user experience rather than joining the specs race. Other than that, Carl Pei has confirmed that the phone will sport a 4700mAh battery.
Nonetheless, the main factor is that Nothing Phone (2) will be official in just a few weeks. And hopefully, it will debut with a very competitive price point.
